"The Hearts of Age" [1934]




Wikipedia...

The Hearts of Age is the first film made by Orson Welles. The film is an eight-minute short, which he co-directed with William Vance in 1934. The film stars Welles' first wife, Virginia Nicholson, as well as Welles himself. He made the film while attending the Todd School for Boys, in Woodstock, Illinois, at the age of 19.

The plot is a series of images loosely tied together, and is arguably influenced by surrealism.
